Pentax 43WR LCD shutoff problem

My LCD truns off about 2 seconds after I turn on the camera. It still takes pictures but I can't see anything in the LCD. The LCD turns back on and stays on when I'm in the menu or when I'm reviewing pictures. Did I accidently find some hidden "LCD off" feature not described in the manual. HELP

With the camera on and in picture taking mode, hit the OK button. This button cycles the display through a number of modes, including one that is normally off (except when using the menu or view).

When i take pictures on my pentax optio s10 the pictures are coming out black but the lcd screen is working, is there anything i can do to fix this?


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Message on LCD screen


'No Picture' usually means just that. There are no images in the memory. So go take some pictures. Check you have the control to the picture taking mode and not the Viewing mode Give the manual a good read.

Camera thinks SD card locked but it is not


try reseting the camera (check the manual for instructions) this sounds like an operating system issue which is just plain not fixable. Check in the SD card slot and look for dust or debris that may be irritating the works. let me know how it goes

Pentax optio S50 Digital Camera problems.


So other than that, how does it work? Since its not taking pictures, nor turning on either. I'm thinking it has to do with the camera power supply. Sometimes simply taking the batteries out and wiping the contacts off has been enough to get mine going again.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
